After countless hours of development, testing user feedback, we're proud to announce that JFBConnect v7 is now available. The main feature in this release is auto-posting of new content to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We've also touched up some issues with Joomla 3.5, improved integration with JomSocial, EasySocial and Community Builder, and made some large performance improvements in how JFBConnect queries the database.

There is something for everyone in this release.

In early 2014, JFBConnect's 'Channel' feature was released to allow users to quickly post Joomla content from their site to a Facebook Page or Group, Twitter Stream or LinkedIn Company. Almost immediately we heard calls to make the process fully automatic. After a lot of development and refinement, that automation is coming in JFBConnect v7, along with numerous other improvements.

Read on for more details of one of our biggest releases. Ever.

Almost a year ago on April 30th, 2014, Facebook made a sweeping change to how it's authentication and integration platform works. At that time, Facebook introduced the Graph API v2.0 which changed the authentication process, added restrictions to many permissions, changed their Javascript interface and changed how user IDs are retrieved for each user. 

These changes will be applying to all Facebook Applications soon and your site may need to be updated to ensure compatibilty. Read on to learn more.

JFBConnect v6.3 is available now. This release brings over 50 new features, usability improvements and bug-fixes. The major updates include Joomla 3.4 compatibility, Yahoo integration, a new front-end method for letting users manage their social network connections, social sharing improvements and new debugging features to help narrow down issues even faster.

With JFBConnect, your website will cover authentication from more than 98% of the providers on the chart above.

With the launch of v2.0 of the Facebook Graph API over 2 years ago, a new review process was also implemented for all Facebook Applications. The review process is Facebook's way to verify that deeper integration features on your site are abiding by Facebook's Terms of Service. There's a lot to understand about the process and some of it may surprise you. Some JFBConnect features like posting to your Facebook Page usually don't even need to go through the review process. For the features that do need review, what's the process and how do you proceed? Read our blog post to find out. https://lnkd.in/eKbiwbb
